Oh joy . . . this ought to be interesting, trying to come up with eight things about myself that don't make me sound batshit insane or hopelessly boring!  Damn it, I like being all mysterious and shit . . . -mutters and pouts and does the friggin' meme anyway, cos rkowhore79 feeds my Jeff Hardy addiction with her picspams and I don't wanna piss her off- ;-p

1.  My nickname at work is the Evil Overlord.  I even have a sign that says so on my desk.  

2.  It also says people can just call me "Mistress" - no one ever does.  EVen when I have my leather flogger and handcuffs on display.  I can't get no respect! ;-)

3. I started writing my "Adventures with the circus" series of stories in 2004.  My OC Vivvie was introduced in the very first sentence of the first of these stories (Stand Back! There's a Hurricane coming thorough!) as dealing with a draft contract.  Fast forward two and a half years - I've moved to a completely new state, in a move I never expected to make, and left the job I was doing when I started writing wrestling fan fiction.  And my new job?  Contracts manager.  That kind of makes me wonder when I can expect to change occupations again to become a computer game designer, or a pyrotechnician, or a female wrestler!!  It's officially spooky.

4.  I am a sucker for plot bunnies - the bloody things breed in my head.  In addition to the four stories I am currently actively writing, all of which still have multiple chapters to be written, there's one more that's only just been started, but I have an outline for, and another on the launching pad.  

5. (really starting to scrape for ideas now - yes I am that boring)  I live only a few kilometres from the ocean, and I never go swimming in it.  But smelling it on the breeze is guaranteed to lift my spirits, no matter how blue I might be feeling.  The Pacific Ocean rocks.  One of the things on my bucket list (you know, the list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket) is to go to California and see the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, since I can't do that in Australia.  I just like the idea of being able to see both sides, you know?

6.  My Ya Ya name is Princess Weeping Cloud.  I stole the name of Bob Threadgood's wife from the movie Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which is not quite as good as Steel Magnolias, but is getting up there.  

7.  I cannot live without my music - at current count, I have over 3700 songs on my WMP, and I'm adding new ones all the time.  I especially love getting recommendations from people of songs, particularly from artists I've not listened to before.  I love broadening my musical horizons!

8.  I've had five surgeries in my life, and I'm facing the sixth in 11 days time.  It's potentially more serious and complicated than any of the previous ones, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worrying about it.  So I hope everyone will forgive me if I'm not around as much, or posting as much.  You guys are the best for lifting my spirits and giving me something good to focus on, and I'm very thankful for that right now.

And I'm not tagging anyone - because rkowhore79 has probably tagged most of my flist anyway.  If she hasn't tagged you, feel free to go on and do it anyway!
